Our Management Committee

Paul O’Connor

Chairman

Paul was appointed to the CURA Board in May 2019 following a short period as an honorary Board member.

Paul brings to the Board extensive experience, knowledge and skills from his career in the Local and State government sectors of WA, mainly in the corporate and/or financial services areas. He is now retired after 11 years at the Shire of Mundaring and 30 years previously in State Government agencies such as Office of Energy, State Treasury, Premier’s Department, Office of Public Sector Standards and Ombudsman’s Office including some time in Ministerial Offices. Paul holds a Bachelor of Business Degree in Accounting and he is a member of other not for profit boards outside of this sector.

Whilst Paul has limited background in the aged care sector, he is committed to contributing to the community through the use of his strong experience and knowledge in finance, governance, human resources, information technology, information management and strategic planning at both State and Local Government levels which he believes will assist the Board and CURA to become an even stronger organisation.

Marjorie Bly

Secretary

Marjorie was born in Rotterdam, Netherlands but has spent nearly all her life in Australia, now living in Perth. After training as a primary school teacher, Marjorie’s career path was interrupted by the birth and upbringing of her four children who are now grown with children of their own – 11 of them.

Instead of returning to teaching Marjorie worked for Australia Post, the Department of Defence in civilian and military roles, and is currently an Assistant Director at the National Archives of Australia where she leads the Perth reference team, providing reading room and remote reference assistance to researchers from all over Australia, and indeed the world.

As she approaches her senior years Marjorie has begun to reconnect with her Dutch heritage. She looks forward to being able to use some of her years of acquired experience to support CURA In-Home Care.
